about

Canadian musician Allison Crowe is uniquely known as, both, an exciting performer of original songs and as a peerless interpreter of others’ works.

It’s musical alchemy to perform Beatles songs in fresh ways that even-Beatlemaniacs appreciate – Crowe’s approach balancing the edge of John Lennon and the sweetness of Paul McCartney.

"Songwriter and mistress of coversongs Allison Crowe beat out Johnny Cash, Ben Lee, Chantal Kreviazuk and Shawn Colvin covers of ‘In My Life’ at the last minute. Buy or download all Crowe's albums via Rubenesque - her own label - and you'll know why this Canadian youngster is one to watch for the next half-century," says popular music blog, “Cover Lay Down”.

Following her legendary performance at the “John Lennon Northern Lights Festival” in Durness, Scotland in 2007, Allison Crowe found herself invited to perform a trio of shows in Liverpool in August 2008 – during the Mathew Street Festival for Beatles Week.

English actor Dean Sullivan, Liverpudlian-from-birth, chats with Allison Crowe during her visit, and plays a selection of songs on “The Sullivan Show”, City Talk Radio 105.9. In this program you’ll hear two Beatles covers – “In My Life” and “Let It Be” – along with one of Allison’s original songs, “Hold Back”, a track off the “Little Light” album released shortly before the tour which brought her Mersey-side to celebrate the Fab Four.

lyrics

In My Life

Composed by John Lennon & Paul McCartney
Performed by Allison Crowe

There are places I remember
In my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain

All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends
I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
there is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I'll love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I'll love you more
In my life I'll love you more
